* ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'' was followed up years later with ''[[The Dark Knight Strikes ComicBook/TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain]] [[strike:Back]] [[ComicBook/TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain Again]]''. In the same decade it got a prequel known as [[ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder All Star Batman and Robin The Boy Wonder]], or [[UnfortunateNames/ComicBooks ASBAR]] for short. For the record, [[SoBadItsHorrible it fits.]] Then, it got a sequel [[ComicBook/DarkKnightIIITheMasterRace Dark Knight III:]] [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything The Master Race]]. Not to mention the book even DC Comics refused to publish, which used an unlicensed ripoff to get around that, [[strike:Batman]] [[ComicBook/HolyTerror Holy Terror]], which is ASBAR filtered through... well, just go look at that page.

* The ''Franchise/{{Rambo}}'' series: ''Film/FirstBlood'', ''Film/RamboFirstBloodPartII'', ''Film/RamboIII'', and ''Film/{{Rambo}}''. Yes, ''in that order''. In Brazil, the second film is called ''Rambo II - A Missão''. Since then, "A Missão" ("The Mission") has become the Brazilian equivalent of "Electric Boogaloo."

The same goes for the Italian title of the second film, ''Rambo II - La Vendetta'' ("The Revenge"), which was often used to mock bad sequels.


Added DiffLines:

* The sequel to ''Film/TheHowling'' has two different subtitles, both equally ridiculous: ''[[Film/HowlingIIStirbaWerewolfBitch Stirba: Werewolf Bitch]]'' and ''Your Sister Is A Werewolf''. Shame that they didn't catch on.

* Leisure Suit Larry Series is very strange naming convention. The Original game is titled, Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards. It's first sequel, Leisure Suit Larry Goes Looking for Love (in Several Wrong Places), informally called LSL-2. The 3rd game, Leisure Suit Larry III: Passionate Patti in Pursuit of the Pulsating Pectorals, is the only one with Roman Numerals. Al Lowe, the creator of the series, famously said their would be no Leisure Suit Larry 4... But he never said anything about 5. Starting with Leisure Suit Larry 5: Passionate Patti Does a Little Undercover Work, an in game joke is that LSL-4 is titled "Leisure Suit Larry 4: The Missing Floppies". After the 5th Game, "Leisure Suit Larry 6: Shape Up or Slip Out!", the 6th Game "Leisure Suit Larry: Love for Sail!" dropped the number 7 in most markets. The game changed the main character to Larry Lovage and dropped the Numbering all togetherin 2004.
